2 Parties in One Day!!!

TWO parties in one day!! I think that's more than we've gone to in the past year! :)

The first one was a 2 year old's birthday party, which his Mama commissioned this banner. I used the Winter Woodlands cartridge for the lettering, ran them upside down through my Xyron, used my new (thank goodness I ordered it!) black Cosmo Stampin' Up glitter for each letter, then ran them back through the Xyron again to adhere to the banner. It wasn't difficult by far, but time consuming! WHEW!

Why these particular colors?? The party was themed for kids (obviously) with one of Ryker's favorite cartoons... Yo Gabba Gabba. After Shawnda showed me the characters, I tried to match the background papers to the characters.

:) Definitely worth it. She's a great friend that really appreciates my 'stuff'!!

Here's a closeup of one of the letters... the glitter showed up pretty well!!

Ryker's Momma is crazy for cupcakes... so here's the card I made for his 2nd birthday. It's from the Create a Critter cartridge.

I'm so excited to say that I FINALLY found a Happy Birthday cut on the Cricut I really like! I'll be using this one often, for sure!!

So later in the afternoon, we attended my husband's boss's Retirement Party. It was very well put together, and I was happy to finally meet him! Every time I went to the office, he was either busy on the phone or not there. They had a great PowerPoint over his years of service, and though I only had a hint that he liked to fish, I found out at the party that he REALLY LOVES to go fishing!!! This card turned out just perfectly!!!

After finally figuring out the Easel card technique, I really like it! It's a card, but also a nice display to look at!
